The Journey to Living Abundantly - Obstacles to Living in Abundance

Dec 15, 2007
The journey to living in abundance is filled with infinite possibilities. However, in many cases for people who desperately want to live in abundance, there may be stumbling blocks or obstacles which cloud your ability to see these possibilities.

So the question for those who are not manifesting their true desires and living in abundance is...am I living in complacency because I have a fear of abundance? This may sound outrageous because the question then becomes...who would not want to live abundantly?

Here, we will take a closer look at this dynamic from a universal perspective. Polarity is a universal law. The law of polarity contends that everything has its polar opposite. The scales of life assure the existence of polar opposites. The Law of Polarity works in conjunction with the Law of Rhythm. Ultimately the cycle is everything returns where it begins. Like a pendulum swinging, this is how all life works, and with an understanding of these laws, we can now see how the Law of Attraction works. Particularly, we see how the Law of Attraction works in the manifestation process. In other words, those things that begin with good intentions manifest goodness. Those things that begin with enlightenment manifest as beacons of light which release the fetters of life.

Abundance is a journey of joy and purpose. Those things that begin with joy and purpose manifest abundance. However, there is a polar opposite to joy and purpose, this polar opposite is fear and complacency.

Everyone who researches the field of human potential, human development, personal development, metaphysics, religion, and philosophy at some point crosses the concept of human emotions often called fear. Fear is often coupled with complacency. Some would say that fear and complacency are age old buddies.

As such, it is comfortable for us to talk about complacency and the fear of poverty; however, we ignore our complacency and fear of abundance.
The reality is, if you fear poverty and have become complacent in this regard, then you fear its polar opposite which is abundance and have become complacent in this regard as well. If you fear poverty, then you fear wealth and abundance. All these fears congest our lives and we are literally paralyzed.

Fear impacts our expectations and complacency causes us to stand still and expect nothing. The Principle of Expectations is linked to the Law of Abundance; hence, the expression...as a man thinks so he is. The Principle of Expectations contends that energy follows thought. If you fear poverty, then somewhere inside, you believe you will live in poverty. Consequently, energy has followed this thought and in due time, your expectation of poverty actualizes.

Now, the connection between the fear of poverty and the fear of abundance begins with complacency. Before taking a deeper probe into this matter, we must end one myth now. There is a myth that there are people who want to live in poverty. No one wants to live in poverty. Poverty means you have very limited options, no power to increase, and no assets. When one lives in poverty, one struggles and has limited options.

Moreover, poverty means your basic needs are at threat, limited, or diminished. Even those who take a vow of poverty for religious or spiritual purposes have their basic needs met and therefore are not truly living in poverty.

While the concept of poverty sounds romantic to many, those who truly experience poverty and lack do not find it romantic at all. It is complacency that keeps most people in this mode of poverty. They stay in this mode because of fear. Fear of doing something different. Fear of seeing the world different. Many people live with so many fears that these fears cause them to live in complacency instead of purpose. Those fears may include fear of giving up old habits, unhealthy relationships, or a familiar routine.

Stepping into our own greatness and living in abundance begins with overcoming our fears and letting go of complacency. When we understand that abundance is a journey of joy and purpose, we will give up the familiar for the new and begin to live life as our true self.
